If the season started Feb 2, the Celtics might be considered a contender

The Celtics are 11-6 in their last 17 games, 7-1 at home during that stretch.  They've won four of their last five against Western Conference teams, with the lone loss being a near-miss against the NBA-best Warriors.  Had they hung on in that contest, the C's would be 3-0 in recent weeks vs. the top three teams in the league (wins over Atlanta and Memphis).

Here are the Eastern Conference standings since February 2:

And across the entire NBA:

Pacers: 14-2
Warriors: 14-4
Trail Blazers: 10-4
Thunder: 12-5
Cavs: 12-5
Spurs: 10-5
Celtics: 11-6

Boston is one of the seven best teams in the league over the past five-and-a-half weeks.  How about that...
